Reports of the dangers associated with denture creams with zinc hit the spotlight in 2008 when the American Academy of Neurology published a report, entitled Denture Cream: An Unusual Source of Excess Zinc, Leading to Hypocupremia and Neurological Disease and again in May 2009 when Chaffin Luhana’s cases were profiled on NBC’s Good Morning America.
The Neurology study detailed the fact that,directions on denture creams containing zinc (such as Fixodent and Super Poligrip) are ambiguous. As a result, consumers, who did not know the dangers associated with overuse, used large amounts of denture creams and/or used them multiple times per day. In fact, denture creams are intended for minimal use, something both GSK and P&G have stated only recently.
Significant use of denture creams exposes users to dangerously high levels of zinc, which can, in turn, result in zinc poisoning a painful impairment marked by symptoms such as:
- Trouble balancing
- Burning, itching, tingling or water-like sensations, when touching things (medically known as dysesthesias)
- Coordination and balance problems, especially when walking
- Loss of sensation or “pins and needles” in the hands, feet, arms and/or legs
- Unexplained pain
- Weakness in the arms or legs
